INSTITUTIONAL POLICY & PLANNING COMMITTEE (IPPC)
Function: The IPPC advises the President with regard to strategic planning, taking a comprehensive view of significant issues affecting the College. In so doing, it serves as the central deliberative body for all-college governance. More specifically, IPPC advises the President on all policy areas, with primary responsibility for those areas beyond the purview of faculty governance (such as budget and financial planning, benefits, environmental issues, admissions and financial aid, student affairs, and advancement).
The President chairs the IPPC; an elected member of the faculty serves as vice-chair. The agenda of the Committee is set by these two individuals in consultation with the President's Cabinet, the Faculty Executive Committee (FEC), and the Student Government Association (SGA).
The IPPC may appoint subcommittees to serve as resources for the committee with regard to any area of policy or planning as needed. The composition of such subcommittees is determined by IPPC in consultation with FEC and with other groups or individuals as appropriate.
Membership: The President (Chair), the Vice President for Academic Affairs, the Vice President for Finance and Administration & Treasurer, the Vice President for Advancement, the Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid, the Dean of Student Affairs, the Dean of Faculty, the Dean of Special Programs, the Director of Institutional Research, three faculty members elected for three year terms, one of whom serves as Vice-Chair and all of whom sit on the FEC, the chair of the Committee on Educational Policies and Planning (CEPP), one representative from the administrative/professional staff, one representative from the support staff, the President of SGA, and one additional student selected by SGA.
